Maybe Capcom can make Captain N Mega Man make an appearance in a future game. Hey, they did it with Bad Boxart Mega Man in Street Fighter X Tekken. And bad boxart Mega Man was going to make an appearance in Mega Man Universe before that game got cancelled.

 Combined with the Mega Man 1 art. Not Megaman himself necessarily, but the style and background.

The artist responsible for that original art should be famous now. How is it that we don't hear his/her name regularly in the gaming community?

I don't think the artist who did this wanted to be famous. From what I heard, Capcom hired the artist to have it done by the next day. So the artist put together this artwork for six hours, not even having the time to know anything about the source material. Thus, giving us this bad artwork.

I might be in the minority here, but I actually enjoy the art that comes out of situations like this. It may not look anything like it's supposed to, but forcing the artist to use their imagination by only having descriptions (and no reference materials, presumably) to go by results in these crazy and offbeat interpretations that you just can't come up with deliberately.

mega man with a handgun wasn't just in the american box art, he was also in the mega man 2 tiger electronic handheld and to make matters worse he had limited ammo.

Agreed. Reminds me of the Filmation versions of several Masters of the Universe characters. They apparently didn't receive final sculpts of several characters, but instead went off of preliminary sketches and color schemes or early drafts of characters. So guys like Clawful, Faker, Trap Jaw, etc. ended up looking different than their figurine counterparts.
